Geordie Hormel Musician

George "Geordie" Hormel (17 July 1928 - 12 February 2006) was the son of Jay Catherwood Hormel and grandson of George A. Hormel. He was a musician and recording studio proprietor. In the 1950s and 1960s, Hormel composed music for numerous television shows including The Fugitive, Lassie, Naked City and The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin. He also sang as part of "The Utility Muffin Research Kitchen Chorus" on Frank Zappa's triple album Joe's Garage (1979). In 1968 he founded a major independent recording studio, The Village Recording Studio in Los Angeles, of which he was proprietor until his death. He owned Wrigley Mansion in Phoenix and the Wrigley Mansion Club housed within it. Thanks to Hormel's dedication, it is beautifully restored and remains a private club for dinner, lunch, Sunday Brunch and special occasions. By Hormel's wish, membership fees are a formality; $3 for a trial, $10 annually for a social membership, $50 annually for a special wine membership and $150 per year for a corporate membership. Hormel married four times; his first wife was the movie actress Leslie Caron. His daughter, Geri, was featured on the MTV show My Super Sweet 16 in December 2007.
